economically, cutting off Finland as
a source of vitally needed dairy prod-
ucts. It has lessened the flow, if
any, of Russian raw materials into
Germany.
Peace in Finland would not change
that immediately or for a long time
to come. Relatively, Russia is as es-
hausted as Finland. It would ,how-
ever, enable Germany to concentrate
her attention on her western sea and
land frontiers, and on protection of
her southeastern economic contacts,
still beyond reach of the Allied block-
ade except by diplomatic pressure.
Peace in Finland on a made-in-
Berlin basis must go down if it
comes, asia new diplomatic coup for
Hitler, particularly if forewarnings
of a Germany military attack in the
west this spring prove to be founded
on fact. If might also precipitate
a political crisis in England.

B1y University
Students at the University may
choose from 53 different degrees
in selecting the ones for which they
intend to work, Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
Assistant to the President, said yes-

terday..
In addition to the degrees, 40 cita-
tions may be added by diploma de-
partments, indicating the field of
concentration of the recipient of the
degree. For instance, Doctor Robbins
pointed out, adegree from the Col
lege of Engineering may be B.S.E.
(E.M.), standing for Bachelor of Sci-
ence in Engineering, in the field of'
engineering mechanics.
Sixteen such citations are offered
to students of engineering, one to
those of the literary college, two by
the School of Forestry and Conser-
vation and the College of Architec-
ture and Design, and one by the
medical school. The School of Music
offers nine different citations, apply-
ing them to both the bachelor's and
the master's degrees, B.Mus. and
M.Mus respectively.
The graduate school offers 31 de-
grees, more than any other college

Congress Offers Independents
Aid In New Tutorial System

50 Honor Students Chosen
For Instr'uction Panel
To Coach All Semester
An independent man who finds
himself in stormy weather scholas-
ticallycan't ask a fraternity brother
for help, but he may secure the as-
sistance of an honor student under
the provisions of a newly reorgan-
ized tutorial plan which Congress,
independent men's organization, is
ready to set into operation.
The tutorial program, according
to Phil Westbrok, '40, president of
Congress, will provide for a better
distribution of scholastic ability
among independents by arranging
for students from the ranks of Phi
Eta Sigma and Tau Beta Pi, literary
and engineering honorary fraterni-
ties, to serve as tutors for less for-
tunate students.
A panel of approximately 50 men
has been chosen for tutoring ser-
vices. Each is willing to give several
hours of instruction a week to stu-
dents who are finding rough going
in their studies. The tutor may
charge a maximum of 20 cents per
hour if he so wishes.
Independents who believe they
need help may register from 2 until
5 p.m. each afternoon Monday thru
Friday at the Congress offices, Room
306 in the Union.
The Congress plan, according to
Prof. Arthur J. Van Duren, academic
counselor, is intended to help stu-
dents who, because of sickness, out-
side work; or other reasons, ,have
dropped behind in their studies. It is
designed to provide aid throughout
Campus Rule
At Minnesota
Gains Prestige
By WILLIAM ELMER
Minnesota has approximately the
same organizations that are some-
times classified under the heading
"student government" that exist here
on the Michigan campus, according
to Charles W. Roberts, editor of The
Minnesota Daily.
One big difference, however, Rob-
erts indicated, is the All-University
Council, which roughly corresponds
to the local Student Senate. This
organization, which is elective, adop-
ted a new constitution several years
ago, Roberts said, resulting in great-
er prestige and more power. In ad-
dition to the Council, there is a
Union Board of Governors, which
unlike our Michigan Union Staff, is
elective.
Altogether, there are about 150 or-
ganizations on campus, Roberts said,
and at various times, the crystallized
protest of the student body, as re-
flected by these bodies, has resulted
in administrative action to alleviate
problems affecting students. "A
faculty housing survey, better light-
ing in the library, the abolition of
compulsory drill and many other
accomplishments can be chalked up
to the efforts of student organiza-
tions-The Minnesota Daily among
them," Roberts said.
One striking difference between
student-administration relations here
and at Minnesota is that very few
students take any part in University
administration of extra-curricular
affairs, as our various Boards in Con-
trol, Committee on Student Affairs,
and other student-represented bodies
of the University. On the contrary,
at Minnesota the situation is reversed
-the university has little to do with
student activities except through a
Student Affairs office, which provides
auditing services and office space for
many organizations, and keeps tab
on them merely by recognizing their
existence or not.

the semester rather than during
"cram" session immediately preced-
ing examinations.
The program was organized last
year by Jack Shuler, '40E. This
year's reorganization has been di-
rected by Richard L. Shuey, '42E,
and David Panar, '41E, heading a
committee consisting of: Paul Bull,
'43, Charles Kuchar, '40, Claude V,
Wadsworth, '40E, George M. Vial,
'41E, Robert Mack, '42.

Summer camP
Will Be Scene
Of Field Study
Geographers To Convene
On Straits Of Mackinaw;
Course Begins June 24
The University's 47th annual Sum-
mer Session will begin June 24 not
only on the campus here in Ann
Arbor, but also in a woodland camp
far from Gasoline Age civilization.
From that date until August 16,
student geographers will convene at
the Geography Summer Camp in
Wilderness State Park about ten
miles west of Mackinac City on the
shores of the Straits of Mackinaw.
There they will learn, "by doing,"
the various techniques of field map-
ping. They will also delve into the
archives of local courthouses to stu-
dy land ownership and tax records,
and will acquire practice in modern
methods of conservation aft lad
utilization.
Open to both men and women, the
Camp's only requirements for ad-
mission are faculty recommendation
and an interest in its activities. Two
eight-hour courses are offered:
Georgraphy 105, Field Course in Ge-
ography, and Geography 205, Ad-
vanced Field Course.
As part of the Summer Session,
the Camp requires that all partici-
pants be registered in the Session.
The regular fee of $35 for Michigan
residents and $50 for out-staters
must be paid before the student ar-
rives, and he must pay in addition
a camp fee of $125. The latter in-
cludes board and room and trans-
portation expenses from and to Ann
Arbor.
Students must obtain the permis-
sion of Prof. Kenneth C. McMurry
of the geography department before
they register at the Camp. Enroll-
ment is limited.

A hearing will be conducted by the
Stae Land Office Board at 1 p.m. to-
day in Lansing on the purchase of
property at the state salvage sale
by the City of Ann Arbor and the
local school board; but the city will
have no qfficial representative pres-
ent, nor will it recognize the hearing
or the right of the Land Office Board
to hold such a hearing.
According to City Attorney William
M. Laird, the Board, through its ex-
ecutive secretary, Clarence W. Lock,
had agreed to postpone the hearing,
originally understood by Laird to be
set for last Monday, until Friday.
Monday night City Treasurer William
F. Verner was notifed by the Board
that the hearing would be held at 1
p.m. today. An answer received yes-
terday to an inquiry by Laird verified
that time and denied any guarantee
of a hearing on Friday.
Laird stated that the city would
not recognize the right of the Board
to repudiate its agreement for a
hearing Friday, and would challenge
the right of the Board to hold such
a hearing. The State Land Office
is not a court, Laird claimed, and has
no right to pass on the legality of
actions by the city council.
The hearing was scheduled in re-
sponse to a petition filed by 35 Ann
Arbor taxpayers challenging the right
of the city and the school board to
purchase land obtained at the state
salvage sale, and requesting the action
be declared void.

Good Transport, Adains

Professor Claims British
Ship Can Out-Maneuver
Any Submarine Afloat
By A. P. BLAUSTEIN
"If the British sent the 'Queen Eliz-
abeth' to the United States to be used
as a transport for either men or sup-
plies they picked an excellent ship
for the purposes," Prof. Henry C.
Adams of the naval architecture and
marine engineering department, said
yesterday.
Contrary to popular belief, Profes-
sor Adams continued, the "Queen
Elizabeth" is well equipped to make
ocean crossings despite the fact that
many claim she is not yet finished.
The only thing she lacks in construc-
tion, he explained, are walls divid-
ing the decks into staterooms, rugs,
furnitue and other things desirable
for luxury ocean travel but not at
all necessary for the transportation
(if possible troops, food or weapons.
Highly Speculative
"This, of course is highly specula-
tive," he pointed out, "as the prob-
able reason for the 'Queen Eliza-
beth's' voyage was to safeguard her
against German bombings, but we
can't overlook the fact that she can
be used as a transport and as such
it's better for Britain to have her over
here."
Her great speed, about 30 knots per
hour, would enable her to do without
much of a convoy as she could prob-
ably out-maneuver any submarine
afloat, he went on to say, and even if
torpedoes did strike home they would
have much difficulty in sinking this
"four compartment boat."
"A four compartment boat is not
a boat with four comparments, as
most people believe," he explained,
"for she certainly hasn't less com-
partments than the 'Queen Mary' and

datys

Queen. E lIimztbeI t1' W hIould Make

she has 17. What we mean by that
trin" is that it is necessary to destroy
four adjoining compartments in or-
der to sink the ship. As a vessel built
like she could have as maiiy as six or
seven leaking sections and still remain
afloat."
Gun Foundations
Noting that the "Queen Elizabeth"
is probably equipped with gun foun-
dations to enable her to mount six-
inch weapons, Professor Adams ob-
served that she would probably be
able to hold off any submarines or
destroyers that attacked her. "Her
speed would also make her a diffleult
target on the open sea," he said, "and
her strength would necessitate a
number of direct hits to sink her."
Her capacity to carry men and
supplies is tremendous, Professor
Adams concluded, as she is very much
larger than the Leviathan, and that
carried 10,000 men per trip on her
eastern trips and from 12,000 to 13,000
on her return voyages.
